The California State University, Bakersfield Food Pantry is stocked in preparation for the visits of Bakersfield's Mayor Karen Goh, and later on, the CSU Chancellor, Dr. Timothy White.

Building community and advocacy for healthy food access takes hard work, but it is also a lot of fun!  A great group of Dorchester Food Co-op members proved this well by walking 3.2 miles in the annual Dorchester Day Parade dressed as healthy foods. Everyone had a lot of fun while working to raise awareness of The Dorchester Food Co-op‚ a food, racial, and economic justice project aimed at empowering our community and making healthy food more accessible and affordable to everyone. Hooray Veggies!

For years, our focus (and economic dependency) on the global food system has steadily eroded our local food system to the point where the 50 or so small and medium Kern-based farms travel to Los Angeles and the Central Coast to sell their produce. But this is shifting. Bakersfield has a farm-to-fork cafe now. And our regional supermarket, FoodMaxx, is carving out more and more space to feature local fruits and vegetables. Every day, I drive by this sign painted on the side of Hen's Roost, one of several food system micro-enterprises that have emerged in the last few years. I read "Eat Local!" and I feel hope.

Lake County Community Food Council

The Lake County Community Food Council has constructed and distributed almost 600 garden boxes in the past two years in the rural county they serve. Council volunteers have worked side by side with families, sharing how to start small gardens regardless of where they live. This effort has started to expand out into surrounding communities. Families express gratitude for being able to touch the soil, choose their own plants, and share this experience as a family. Relationship starts in the garden‚ conversations happen, laughter is shared, and memories are made. There is a connectedness to the earth and each other that is hard to explain. The mother of this child in the photo shared, "I love when my child and I can get our hands dirty together". The joy of creating something together and the anticipation of what is to come is beautiful. As permaculture consultant Geoff Lawton said, "All the world's problems can be solved in a garden".

A Place at the Table believes that everyone deserves a good meal, regardless of means. The restaurant has a pay-what-you-can model. You can pay nothing, the listed price on the menu, or more if you have the means and the desire. This ensures that everyone has a place at the table. The picture shows me harvesting turnip greens from a farmer who grew them exclusively for the use of the restaurant, free of charge. It's beautiful when people come together for a cause around a table and provide food for all.

Photo: Hunger-Free School Award

Publication Type
Photo

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a new option that allows schools with high percentages of low-income children to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. Not only does community eligibility increase participation in school meal programs, but it also reduces labor costs for schools, increases efficiency, reduces stigma, and increases federal revenues. However, the name of the program doesn't express how powerful it is or how it works. Therefore, Maryland Hunger Solutions celebrates schools that use CEP by presenting them with a "Hunger-Free School" banner, as seen in the photo. All public schools in Baltimore City, Dorchester County, and Somerset County are Hunger-Free, thanks to CEP.

This photo is of Charlottesville City School students in the Buford Middle School Garden. They came out to the garden during a PE class to harvest Collard Greens and other garden greens. The students were blown away by the size of the collard leaves. "They're HUGE!" one of the students said as she stuck it in front of her face. After that, all the students started grabbing the large collard greens and putting them over their faces. I asked for a photo, and this is the one that we got!

On Valentine's day 2017, students across the state participated in the first "Maryland Meals for Achievement Day." Maryland Meals for Achievement is a successful state initiative that expands access to universal breakfast in the classroom in more than 450 high-poverty schools. The program supports both health and learning and has been shown to result in better student attendance, academic performance, and behavior. Unfortunately, the program is underfunded, and many high-poverty schools that want to participate are on a waiting list due to insufficient funding. The goals of Maryland Meals for Achievement Day included raising awareness about the program among schools and legislators with the aim of increasing funding for the program.

On Maryland Meals for Achievement Day, students across the state created special Valentine cards especially for our State's leaders to express their thanks for the program.  In the photo, Michael J. Wilson, Director of Maryland Hunger Solutions, presented some of the Valentines that students created to Senator Richard Madaleno and Delegate Sheila Dixson, two state legislators who championed The Maryland Meals for Achievement for Teens Act in 2017. Photos from the event were also shared on social media using the hashtag #iLoveMMFA.

The Montgomery County Food Council was honored to be selected by Whole Foods Markets to be the recipient of a 5% Day on June 22, 2017. On this day, 5% of the net sales from the five Montgomery County Whole Foods Markets were donated to the Food Council. Entertainment and activities were scheduled throughout the day at all five Montgomery County stores, including local product tastings provided by 8 Montgomery County businesses, cooking demonstrations led by 5 chefs featuring local products as key ingredients, a raffle to win a basket of MoCo products, and grocery store bingo for the kids. In addition, 22 Food Council volunteers and 6 staff/interns shared information and resources about the Food Council and their own organizations with shoppers. In this photo, Chef Susan Callahan is visited by our friends and partners from Crossroads Community Food Network, who generously volunteered their time at our 5% Day and also added some humor and whimsy to the event! Chef Susan is preparing Pasta and Potatoes with Early Summer Vegetables using MoCo-made LaPasta linguine and Cherry Glen goat cheese.
